I see no other mention of an Olympus watch!!

When I purchased my Olympus E-3 on Saturday I was the lucky recipient of an Olympus watch to accompany it. Nothing too brilliant, but very kind and presentable nonetheless. The Olympus rep was in the store I purchased the camera from so maybe this was something to do with it.

Anyone else have one of these...?

Sure, but not at home until the end of this week. Am in Copenhagen today then London for the rest of the week. I will take some shots on the weekend for you.

Often on 'Dealer Days', where a rep is int he store to help flogg stuff, they give away extra goodies/discounts. It was probably that happening. You can now make us all jealous with your very exclusive watch

I must admit, it's nice enough, and I am grateful to Olympus for it and will wear it with pride when the occasion presents itself

And there was I impressed with the free 'nipple clamps' that they gave us at the Worx launch.

I confess to now having two 'free' Olympus baseball caps and am waiting 'for the right moment' to wear those as well.

I wonder if I'm not meeting the right people at Olympus

Peter

PS do you think they traded your manual for the watch?

Haha, I guess so... I really need this so I can fathom out how to set it up custom wise for the way I want the functions to work. I appreciate there's a PDF manual floating around, but that's a pain really and I want my own manual I can write in etc.

Hi John.
I got an Olympus watch when I went to an E 330 'do' at Digital Depot some time ago. An oly guy at one of the London 'do's' said that there was a new one on the way. Mine has a brown strap, wot colour yours?

Wot are 'nipple clamps' Peter? I was at the 'Worx' do but don't remember them. Mind you, they sound painful

Dave.

Yes, they were silver weighted blocks with a metal flexible stem topped by cunningly sharp crocodile clips (for attaching to the nipple).

Initially I thought they might be for weighing down stray grass stems when I was doing nature photography but all was explained to me later.

Did you not get one? I was disappointed only to get one for obvious reasons.

Oh yes!! I did get one. I thought they were for fixing bits of paper to, silly me.

They are desk photo holders! Clip a picture in the croc clip and have it on your desk!! voila!
